Curious...FTM or BTDT

How many of each to we have yet?

Are you a FTM or a BTDT? If, BTDT, how many? For both, many children would you like to have ideally?

One son who is 3. Ideally, I would like 3, but we have have to settle for two financially and with the cost of daycare.

I have a 6 year old boy and a 3 year old boy. This will be the last one for us. I would love to have a girl but I figure I am destined to have 3 boys since my sister has 3 girls. LOL

I have a 6 year old girl and a 1 year old girl turning 2 in February. I had want to have 4 and husband wants 2 so we compromise. This will be our last baby because of age and finances.

I have an 11 year old son, a 8 yr old son, and a 5 yr old daughter. 3 was our magic number and we were supposed to be done. During our move from Il to Az, I lost my birth control and eye glasses somewhere in Oklahoma. 3 weeks later I'm getting a BFP and surprise, here comes #4!

Btdt Smile this is my third. I'm due 6 weeks after my first turns three.

Right now I have an almost 2.5 y/o boy and an 11 month old boy. Our magic number is however many the good Lord sends us Wink

BTDT, this will be my second. I have a 2 year old daughter. I would like 3 and my husband definitely wants a boy so if this is a girl I think it's for sure we're at least having one more. Although I'm thinking of just stopping with this one. The m/s is so severe and I just don't want to do it again (I did say that last time too lol).

This is number 4. I have a 19yr old son, an 18yr old son and a 13yr old daughter.

As I have just turned 40 this will be my last baby (it is hubby's 1st child).

#3 for us. Were planning on just two but life doesn't always go according to plan. My kids are 5 and 7 and our lives are very chaotic so this is... It's going to be interesting!

BTDT i have a 2 year old son. I want 3, DH wants 2 but I think he can be persuaded. We both go back and forth on a third.

This LO will be my second--I have a 22 month old daughter.

We always said at least two, but not more than four. We both come from families of three, but would be happy with two. So, we're undecided at this point if this is the last one or the middle one Smile

I can't believe we don't have any FTMs yet.

I'm so excited to get to know you ladies!

BTDT as well. This will be our 3rd, which is the number I'm pretty happy with. DH sometimes agitates for a 4th, but we'll see if we can handle 3 first!

I'm a btdt mum! I have 2 boys who are 3yrs, and 1yr 8mths - only 16mths between them which was hard work at the time!! Will be a novelty this time round having a larger gap. As for anymore babies, I think I will want to go on forever lol but dh won't let me and to be honest going from 3 to 4 would be way to much for us with our small house car etc!

BTDT. I have a two year old boy. I've always wanted 3 or 4, but I got started a little later, so this could very well be our last. At the most would be one more.

BTDT... We have a 4 year old girl and 21 month old boy. We hope to have at least 4 children - possibly 5.
